With the latest Community Pack Kushan released this scenario's magazines was wiped out with the rebuild to DB Version V488.

So I looked at my backup of the file I submitted and the old version (V487) doesn't ever acknowledge that the Delta INI file is valid and appears to be saving a corrupted file. The scenario was originally built under C:MO Build 1147.14 Database DB3000 v487. I believe that was a Beta when I was designing the scenario. I just attached the scenario, if you try to generate a Delta you'll see the point, it saves on but it is corrupted.

It isn't completing the extract - no success/fail message on completion.
I can see the error: "Invalid name character in 'Unit_ddg-176 chokai'. The ' ' character, hexadecimal value 0x20, cannot be included in a name."
The GUID of the unit is wrong - it has a space in it. Was the unit added by Lua?

The error reporting has been changed to show an error on screen when it fails to fully complete the export. The ExceptionLog should show the error.

Next build should cater for this situation on scenario loading and replace the ' ' with a '-'. This will allow the export of the INI file, both full and delta.
The customized GUID will replace ' ' with '-' when it is used on a new unit.

Yup that change fixed it. Thank you for the help and I have NOOOOOOOOOOO idea how I did this. I know better than to play with GUID but when you're tired and the eyes get blurry...

THANK YOU!
